Falafals were dry, not good. Breakfast was great. I took my friend here from out of town and I was disappointed in the Falafel's. The worse. But, I have had breakfast here and it is wonderful!

We opted to try our first breakfast at this cafe and were shocked! The food was actually really good. Very small place inside but the breakfast was really good and there are coupons on most brochures for discounts here as well. Located right across from the Carlsbad Inn and the beach. Very friendly wait staff as well.

My wife, daughter, granddaughter and I had lunch at the Armenian Café on a June Sunday. We enjoyed a table on one of the two outdoor patios. Each table has an umbrella to provide some welcome shade. My wife had the Denver Omelet (with home fries), my daughter the Chicken Salad (on the gluten free menu), her daughter the Chicken... More

Also loved their lemony rice soup that comes with the meal. Great value spot. Hate the stupid belly dancing on weekend nights though, unless you like having a woman wiggle her belly in front of your husband.

This is a great little cafe with a view of the ocean right from their patio. The food was just amazing and staff was very friendly. We stayed at the Surf Motel, right next door, so this was a great place to get take-out from!

Shouldn't a restaurant advertising it's (bogus) claim of being the best breakfast in SD County have toast, fresh cooked bacon and be able to put out bacon and eggs in less then 25 minutes, with only 1 other table for 2 in the restaurant. I should have known when I walked in that it was not going to have a... More

Thank you very much for your kind response. I was informed that you were expecting regular Toast vs. what we offer in our menu. Sorry to let you down as we did not carry what you were expecting. We do cook our Bacon Fresh To Order and that is why sometimes it takes longer than a fast food establishment like... More

My sister and I were actually trying to find a different breakfast spot when we found Armenian Café. Lost and hungry, we decided to try it. My sister is not a breakfast out person, but she was humoring me on my visit. That said, this was her favorite breakfast ever. We started with the Armenian coffee - definitely try it.... More
